Show Summary
Before he became "Sam the Cooking Guy," Sam Zien was a working stiff just like everyone else. However, one day in 2001, he decided to leave behind his position at a San Diego biotech company to spend his days doing something he was truly passionate about. After a great deal of thought and reflection, Sam decided that he would combine his love for people and zest for life by pursuing a career in television.

In 2002, Sam set about filming the type of cooking show that he would like—one with easy-to-follow steps, a lot of humor and zero pretension. Then, with nothing to lose, he distributed the tape to local San Diego television news stations. Before he knew it, he had landed a regular two-minute cooking segment twice a week on a local San Diego morning news show.

As his audience grew, Sam's cooking segment evolved into a 30-minute show appropriately named Sam the Cooking Guy, which continues to air in various cities across the country. The show's irreverent mix of easy-to-replicate recipes and spontaneous humor was an instant hit with viewers and critics, as evidenced by its eight local Emmy awards.

Now, Sam can be seen coast-to-coast in JUST COOK THIS Thursday nights on Discovery Health. JUST COOK THIS features Sam's trademark offbeat wit, while this time exposing viewers to great-tasting, easy-to-prepare recipes that are also healthy.
